Just putting this out the hopes that this will help schools consider the ammount of 'food' iwn school activities and lesson plans.

The Honourable Gail Shea, Minister of Fisheries and Oceans, announced today on behalf of the Honourable Leona Aglukkaq, the Minister of Health for Canada, funding for the pan-Canadian Joint Consortium for School Health.

“Public health involves all levels of government and all sectors of society,” said Minister Shea. “Today, we are pleased to support the Joint Consortium for School Health and its comprehensive approach that pulls together health and education to boost health and learning opportunities for children and youth.”

“We are proud of our health and education systems – especially when they work together to benefit our children,” said Prince Edward Island Education and Early Childhood Development Minister Doug Currie. “The Consortium plays an important role in coordinating health and education efforts to focus on priorities such as physical activity and healthy eating for optimum growth, learning and development.”
